-new cnn/orc poll of likely voters have mitt romney and president obama in a dead heat, 49% apiece. both candidates are canvassing the critical swing states on this final full day on the campaign trail. the president will hold rallies in madison, wisconsin, columbus, ohio, des moines, iowa. governor romney is in florida and lynchburg and fairfax virginia, columbus ohio and in manchester, new hampshire. and it wouldn't be a presidential election without some kind of legal fight in the state of florida. the state's democratic party is suing to extend early voting hours with people reporting lines of up to seven hours at some south florida early polling stations. cnn has this place covered like no other network. we've got dan lothian in madison, wisconsin. jim acosta is in orlando, florida, martin savidge is in cleveland, ohio. miguel marquez is in las vegas, nevada. ed lavandera is in denver, colorado, for us this morning. john zarrella comes to us live from plantation, florida. we want to begin with complete comprehensive coverage with john berman checking in to see how our correspondents
. "cnn newsroom" continues now with brooke baldwin. >> thank you so much. good to see all of you on a very exciting week this monday. i'm brooke baldwin. here we go. this is the real life political thriller gripping the nation, folks, we're now hours away from the final chapter. tomorrow is the day the majority of the nation heads to the voting booth. and take a look at this here, brand-new, cnn orc polling here shows really neither guy, look at this. 49%, 49%. talk about a page turner here. but for some voters, the voting has already begun. look at the lines. you see the sign. miami-dade county, these folks waiting hours to cast their absentee ballots there. you know the deal in florida. battleground state, one of the battleground states getting a visit from mitt romney. as he and the president are maximizing each and every campaign hour. president obama is hitting wisconsin, iowa, and, of course, ohio, before heading to chicago. and very soon he will be rallying the crowds in columbus, getting a boost from some a-list celebrities. meantime, mitt romney, he is traveling up the e
. have a great weekend. >>> it's the top of the hour. you're in the cnn newsroom. i'm susan hendricks in today for fredricka whitfield. we have new information on the david petraeus resignation. the highly dedicated army colonel quit after announcing he had an extramarital affair. it's an fbi affair that's sounding alarms. the fbi was investigating some suspicious e-mails and found some e-mails between paula broadwell and david petraeus. broadwell is the woman who wrote his biography. the fbi looks to see whether his communications had been compromised, and they said they had not been. now, petraeus was interviewed by the fbi, but it's not clear if broadwell has been questioned and if she will be. a u.s. official said petraeus was never a target of an investigation and that a tip about an affair led to that probe. now, general petraeus was scheduled to testify next week about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that d
. and their desperation is now turning to anger. cnn's brian todd is on the island. he's joining us live. brian, tell us what's going on. >> reporter: wolf, we're in the new dorf beach section cedar grove avenue. this place is still flooded out even after the waters receded. people just barely able to kind of wade through the water, try to get to homes and assess damage. you've got a church that's flooded out here to your left, my right. and our photo journalist can pan back over this way down marine way. look down here with just the debris and people trying to gather things and bring things out and clear their homes of all the wreckage. what we know now, wolf, is that the bodies of two young boys who were washed away from their mother during the storm have been found. they were found in a marsh not too far away from here. now, that brings the death toll we think to a little bit more than the dozen people that we knew of before. exact numbers i don't have. but it's more than a dozen now just on staten island were killed by this. hundreds of homes have been damaged or completely destroyed. now we're goin
a break the no tax pledge. that is a hopeful sign, folks, because a new cnn/orc poll shows more than two thirds of americans believe a trip over that cliff would create major problems, perhaps even a crisis. cnn political editor paul steinhauser is live from washington, d.c. this morning. nice to see you, paul. so the fiscal cliff triggers back-breaking tax hikes and massive spending cuts. you've got more numbers that show what type of budget plan americans actually prefer. >> exactly. one of the big arguments, zoraida, is should it be all spending cuts to get us there or tax increases, as well? brand-new numbers just out from cnn/orc. only about one in three say whatever deal should be struck should be just spending cuts. but almost seven in ten, two thirds of americans say the plan should include spending cuts and tax increases. our poll indicates americans are not so optimistic a deal will get done and if it doesn't get done, who gets the blame? look at this right here, about 45% say republicans in congress will be blamed if there is no deal and the country falls off the fiscal cliff.
with former mississippi governor haley barbour and cnn's dana bash. i'm candy crowley. this is "state of the union." >>> they are ships passing in the night and the day. this day mitt romney will be in iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia, while the president heads to new hampshire, south of florida, back up north to ohio, out west to colorado. monday romney goes to florida, virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. obama counters with wisconsin, ohio, and a closing rally in iowa. the biggest surprise in that final 48 hours is romney's last minute bid in pennsylvania. polls in the state favor president obama, but not by as much as they once did. the romney campaign calls it expanding the electoral map. the obama campaign calls it a fairy tale. welcome to the parallel universe phase of the campaign. joining me is chicago mayor and former white house chief of staff rahm emanuel. let me start by showing a poll out of pennsylvania showing that the president's numbers have been slipping since september, and it's now looking like a four-point race in pennsylvania, which is inside the margin of e

on cnn. let's watch. >> i don't see any movement toward ts republicans wanting to raise taxes or people wanting to break their pledge. in fact, to be fair to everybody, some of these people have had impure thoughts. no one has pulled the trigger and voted for a tax increase. >> nothing's changed. he's also lying. they have indeed voted for a tax increase. senator tom coburn introduced last year, a bill in the senate to close the ethanol tax credit. saxby chambliss voted for it and violated their grover norquist pledge for it. >> and also, just by voting for the sequester, they have signalled their willingness to allow steep cuts in defense and tax increases. i mean, he can pretend their clothes are still in his closet and that means they're coming back, but that doesn't mean they're coming back. >> grover norquist is going to be the last person in washington to admit he is irrelevant. it is over, grover. >> yeah, people aren't quick to admit their irrelevance in washington. "wall street journal" board is even pushing grover norquist on this. they said president obama's re-election means
points. i want to learn something, not just be entertained. >> it is not as exciting as cnn or fox, but you get the real story. i like it. >> darrell and mary lynch watch c-span on a comcast. by america's cable companies in 1979 and provided as a public service. at a campaign event today, rob portman and senate candidate joshed mandel courage schroders to vote early for the romney- ryan ticket. this is part of the bus tour that began october 2. it is half an hour. >> good evening. we are very glad to have senator portman and the next u.s. senator from ohio with us. [applause] i am congressman mike turner. yesterday, we were with mitt romney in dayton, ohio, doing a disaster relief effort for the victims of hurricane sandy. it was great to see the energy and excitement that mitt romney in this state brought. he was with paul ryan as he started on saturday and went down -- i think the momentum is with us. people are excited. people are excited about what a president mitt romney means. we will and these trillion dollar deficit. [applause] we will and these trillion dollar deficits, st
. on the sequestered, i heard somebody say either on cnn or fox that without the spending, and our gdp would be 1.3%. our economy is anemic. we cannot -- we need to do things that are necessary, get rid of these regulations and put some -- you know, lower taxes. and let these corporations put these -- we need policies, you cannot, businesses do not operate on twelvemonth plans. they operate on three, five-year plans. there is no confidence in washington sure yet you have businesses sitting on a bunch of cash and are not spending it, not hiring because there is no confidence in washington. they do not know what is going to happen next. they do not know what their tax rate is going to be. we need to focus on policies and create a pro-growth environment so these businesses will have confidence in washington and they will invest in their organizations and hire people. you cannot -- we are never going to create a pro-growth environment when, you know, they are doing things on twelvemonth plans. it is not acceptable. and the defense department, look at what happened in -- we have to protect ourselves.
of the election. we could have done better. we will do better, the secretary of state said on cnn during pointed questioning from the anchor. but in an exclusive interview the "herald times," scott made no apologies for what led to an incomplete vote, three days after the election. what i'm trying to do is improve the way government works, scott said. i believe in efficiency. i believe every vote has to count. i want to have a good process that people feel good about. back to the phones, talking about president obama's claim that the election gives him a mandate to tax the rich. the next call comes from kim in mayor the a, georgia, making between $50,000 and $100,000 a year. go ahead, kim. caller: hi. i don't think the election gives him a mandate for anything. i also believe that you're not going to be able to really truly affect the situation by taxing the upper -- there's not enough money. you have to tax the middle class. the middle class is the biggest class, and, you know, when obamacare goes through, there's going to be like 20 taxes go through on the middle class. so when people voted fo
: alan there is a poll out this morning i want to get your reaction. cnn released a poll. higher is the question, do you think israel was justified or unjustified in taking military action against hamas and the palestinians in the area known as gaza. 57% of the public say yes and they don't even mention the fact that hamas is a terrorist organization. >> i think people know that. people aren't dumb. people know it's a terrorist organization except for its political ring. israel ramped this up when they killed the head of their military organization a couple of weeks ago. the american media tends to be pro israel. i don't know where jim comes down on that. generally the american media, israel is an ally and we view israel favorably tends to be very pro israel and we often don't get the palestinian perspective in the american media about what is going on. jon: we'll have to leave the discussion there for today. it's a story we'll continue to watch in the days and weeks ahead. let's hope they can get something figured out and end the bloodshed soon. thank you both. jenna: black frid
" ♪ ] intelligence officials told cnn the intelligence community, not the white house changed the benghazi talking points given to susan rice. what is he -- he does not like the stand on this. director of national intelligence spokesperson said the only changes came from the intelligence community not the white house. as david petraeus just said. he keeps screaming about he's looking for answers. he gets them and he keeps screaming. >> those aren't the answers i want. i need better answers! >> stephanie: the original assessment of the benghazi attack was it was carried out by al-qaeda affiliated groups. he said that analysis was taken out after an interagency review in favor of a more general review that they did not tip off terrorists to u.s. knowledge of the matter. we already covered this. general petraeus and now other intelligence officials are just -- you know, making it even clearer. so let's see. john mccain, lindsey graham, blah blah, have accused the white house of stripping for political reasons. the director
comedians. i love the op-eds you do for cnn.com. i wanted to talk to with you about all of the issues going on this week. i guess that everything that we're talking about all began when the c.i.a. surveillance operatives misunderstood david petraeus when he first said i want to tap that. did you ever imagine that we would see a soap soap ra like this? it is like the jersey shore for rich people. people copulating left and right and these weird tampa socialites. i don't know where to begin. what's your take on petraeus gate? >> i think you're right on the head. jersey shore is going off the air. this is the perfect replacement. great show. it's got drama. it's got women fight. that's what you need. you have to get them a room. this internet stuff is no good. let's see the fight. if you're the c.i.a. director and you can't keep an affair secret, you should be fired. >> john: thank you very much. if you're in d.c. and anyone in d.c. who can't keep an extramarital affair secret does not deserve to run a spy agency.
's doing in office. at 52%, it's the highest approval marks the president has received from the cnn/orc survey since may. a majority of people say his experience over the first four years will make him a better president in the second term. there is measured optimism, however, about the future. 56% believe the country will be better off four years from now, compare that to four years ago when 76% felt that way. >>> moving on now, governor chris christie is getting ready for a second term. the republican governor has filed paperwork to run for reelection. christie currently enjoys a record high approval rating from -- following his hands on response to hurricane sandy. before the storm, 56% of registered voters in the garden state approved of the job he was doing after sandy, they were surveyed again giving the governor -- >> look at these numbers. >> 77%. >> willie, you're a new jersey guy. new jersey native. i'm sure you can't remember a governor having a 77% approval rating, a republican governor in a blue state having a 77%. 67% of democrats in new jersey give chris christie a po
pennsylvania. caller: their number one. cnn forget it. chris matthews plays the race card every tying democrats are losing. then it is the other guy. benghazi should be number-one. four americans killed. where is obama? he would not want any programs and answer anything. host: let me get your thoughts on this. guest: the president has been in a couple of debates since what happened there. the subject did come up here yet i think it is not correct to say that he has not gone anywhere where the subject has been able to be discussed. we did have nationally- televised debates. the president has been very clear, and that is we need to get to the bottom of what happened, and we will find those responsible and hold them responsible. given the president's record with respect to the leadership of al qaeda and bin laden, i think we can expect him to do exactly what he promised to do, and that is fine the responsible -- find those responsible and held them responsible. did you want to picture it is done correctly and with the correct information. that is what the president is doing, and i think that is th
. here is a piece coming to us from cnn. extra day of voting possible in new york. voters may get an extra day to cast ballots if disruptions' prevent and of citizens from showing up at the polls . host: this story, from abc. host: tone -- host: tony, joining us by e-mail, go ahead. caller: your subject is on the confidence of the electoral process. myself, i am very confident in the electoral process. i am a sworn commissioner and i am actually less confident in the media, who buys into the democrat's idea that there is a problem in the electoral process, rather than holding to your journalistic creed of objectivity and holding only to the facts. i have seen the facts. i have worked in the polls here for a long time. there is a lot of concern about the south and you see the media playing it that they are seeing poll watchers in the department of justice sending people to the south, but what i just heard on c-span was like an advertisement for obama. he got to say his closing statement again on time for c- span, which i have always held to be greatly objective until this morning.
does the american public. the cnn poll showed the american public, while they feel they haven't handled it well, certainly doesn't feel that they're willing lied to. >> bill: susan is calling us from rockford, illinois. hey, susan, good morning. >> caller: hi, susan rice didn't do a thing wrong. geraldo rivera admitted on his tv show, i watched it, he congratulated himself on coining the phrase benghazi gate -- >> of course he did. >> caller: and that's thousand all got started. it was a plan, i'm sure there was money involved. somebody got paid for making up the story. that woman didn't do a thing wrong. it was b.s. from the beginning. i think geraldo needs to serve community service for you know, i feel abused for him adding to my anxiety on tv. it is not true. >> bill: thank you susan. actually if geraldo served a prison term for everything he took credit for, he would be there for life. >> benghazi gate, where did you come up with that, geraldo? >> i'm waiting for them to really seriously start circling
to study in the congress. >> deirdre walton, cnn, since the elections john boehner has been talking about what to negotiate a deal on the fiscal cliff and says he is open to new revenue and willingness to compromise. i was wondering what you think of his position on this, and if you are right to support him this afternoon? >> i do not know if you are here earlier when i spoke about the 10-1 deal. i want to see where they are willing to cut. olive heard is that the democrats are saying they are not willing to cut anything in. the president had a meeting last night with the labor unions, all of these separate liberal groups. and everyone of those groups to the president that he should not deliver anything on a reforms of our entitlement system, but you should insure the delivers a tax increase. i do not think they are open- minded in any way. i think we need to stop negotiating with ourselves. and we need to wait for the democrats to actually give us an offer that is a real serious offer. we need to stop speaking amongst ourselves. he won the presidency, let him lead. >> i believe that reve
. i just happened to catch the comments he made on cnn last night. he was very grateful to the tennis feeding vehicles he had seen just after his press conference. -- the 10 vehicles. we appreciate any out reached to let people know what we are working on in staten island. we are in tottenville, hugenot, and we are all over there. we're continuing to build on that. again, a quick summary. in new york, a massive feeding effort under way on long island with fixed feeding sites in nassau and sussex with more coming. s.i., queens, brooklyn, the bronx, manhattan, and the two on long island. 40 shelters, but i think you are most concerned with beating capacity. -- feeding capacity. we have already shipped 307,000 meals into new york. for new jersey, we also have 30 shelters open in the garden state and we have four mobile kitchens that are capable of 80,000 meals per day with another 350,000 ready-to-eat meals already there. both cases include kosher meals. there are disturbing food as well. we are stealing of the full resources of our feeding capabilities in all of the impacted states. >>
news or cnn or what have you. if you had calculated the expense that would be required to pay for the campaign in the media, millions of dollars. it is exciting that can happen at any time and from any individual. >> what has been the most successful campaign so far? >> the campaign that inspired us to give it from the very broad objective was the incredible campaign about a year and a half ago in south africa. a huge global explosion of campaigns for change. a woman walking down the street, and she gets grabbed and thrown into a shack and raped and almost killed. they said she was a lesbian woman and the man was trying to turn her straight. awful thing, collectively. a good friend sees this and starts a petition and ask the minister of justice to take issue seriously. 180,000 people take action. a huge overall media exposure. after about a month of campaigning, that government apologizes and parliament passes a bill to have a task force to investigate the issue. it is an amazing demonstration of people power. >> what has had the biggest impact in the u.s.? >> one of the most
. perhaps you'd like to share with us your thoughts, your experience. did i see you on cnn one night as you were working with your constituents, trying to meet the disaster in your area. mr. pallone: i want to thank my colleague from california for having this special order and talking about the hurricane damage and what needs to be done in the future. i have to say that the damage to my district was catastrophic . we had many towns where initially at least it looked like the majority of the homes and businesses were wiped out. now, when we go back and look again, some of them can be saved. but we're talking about thousands of people who lost their homes and many of others who lost their businesses. it really created a humanitarian crisis in that first week or so because we were trying to get fema in with the disaster recovery centers and with the red cross and the salvation army. and really over the first week the main concern was just humanitarian, trying to find shelter for people, trying to make sure they had food and water and clothes. but i have to say the response was overwhelming. s
